The UCCS music program welcomes visiting composer Philip Blackburn who will be working with composition and performance students as well as presenting a concert of his music this Friday, September 10, 7:30pm in the Chapman Foundations Recital Hall at the Ent Center for the Arts. Mr. Blackburn is a good friend of the UCCS Music Program, having been a guest several times in the past. He created the hyperopera (multi-media, interactive site-specific theater) The Sun Palace (2012) at UCCS based on the early history of Cragmor Hall as a sanitorium. He also installed wind harps at the Heller Center for the Arts & Humanities that continue to sound to this day.
